REAL ESTATE DISPUTE? [Edited May 1, 2017]

Condo documents, amendments: key to examine re any dispute

It's hardly unimaginable for disputes to occur with regularity -- even numbing frequency -- in a planned residential community in Naples or elsewhere in Florida.

Disputes over land use can be a slippery slope

Imagine you have recently bought a home in Naples. The property wasn't cheap, but you loved the area and the views. And while you love the home, maybe there are some changes you want to make. Your options can all be pretty straightforward in this situation, unless you share some of your property with your neighbors or are part of a homeowners' association.

Real Estate Purchase and Sale - Can I get my deposit back?

When you are buying, building or renting a home, it is common to pay some sort of deposit. This money can serve different purposes. A security deposit for a lease can be used for things like repairing damage done by a tenant. If the deposit is for a new home being built, it can be used to reserve land. An earnest money deposit on an existing home can be considered an indication of a buyer's serious and good faith intention to purchase the home.
